❌SOLD❌ Relish Mary One Solidbody Guitar, Black NOS


Instrument Categories: , , ,

In new condition but offered at a significant discount, is this Relish Mary One in Black – new “old” stock.

Fairly new on the scene, Relish guitars are designed built in Switzerland, a little northwest of Lucerne. They are innovative in both design and choice of non-traditional materials and assembly methods. The Twelfth Fret staff visited the Relish booth at the last NAMM show in Anaheim, and we’ve just taken delivery of a representative sample set.

The example here is the Relish Mary One model in satin Black finish, which has two standard humbucking pickups plus a piezo element with an active preamp. There are other Mary models with center cores of varying materials. The place to start, however, is what makes these guitars innovative and distinct.

While the Relish Mary One starts with a traditional bolt-on neck and body core, the design rapidly diverges from the ordinary. The maple neck is bolted to a central core – for the Mary One, it’s a milled Aluminum slice – but the top and back are high pressure veneers and the fingerboard is Dark Strand Woven Bamboo. As you can see in the ‘Open Back View’ photo, the aluminum core is cut away to allow mounting of all the hardware. The assembly is very neat and tidy; there is a lot of attention to detail in these builds.

As well, the back is held on by a set of seven magnets running around the edge! It’s very easy to pop the back off if you need to change a battery or a string – it requires no tools, yet the back won’t easily come off ‘accidentally’.

The Relish Mary One is very well thought out and very well made. Relish has been able to create a new design that doesn’t really look like anything else while still having an attractive shape. But above all – they sound good!

Sold with its original hard shell case.
